    Areas do not matter. DirecTV is the same everywhere. You must have a 3LNB dish only. I wouldn't call it an "upgrade" or a "special" dish. It is just one of many options.

    Do you even seen the Gol channel in your guide? [Not that CSRs are ever wrong, but they could be. :) ]

    You may find it to be funny, but it is also true.

    I have to admit, I've gotten caught up in several LMN movies over the years that I could not stop watching...........Glad to see that channel in HD.

    I would hope that FUSE HD and WE HD come fairly quickly after IFC HD is on the system. My rational is because the owner, AMC NETWORKS usually bundles AMC HD, IFC HD, WE HD and FUSE HD as a package. Having 2 out of the 4 tells me that at least some kind of deal was done, or at least people at DIRECTV were talking to AMC NETWORKS.

    I found this on my DirecTV recent activity.

    01/24/2013 XXXXXXXXXXXX ENCORE Themes HD - Charge $0.00

    I guess they expected Encore action to launch last week. Atleast I known my access cards have authorization when launched.

    While DIRECTV offers details about their Latin American hardware configuration statistics, in the US, they glob all DVRs and HD receivers together. That number for the last reported quarter (2012 Q3) was 90% Advanced Products. You would have to somehow ferret out how many of SD DVRs there were but in a decidedly Applesque move, they've not been in the habit of giving the information up.

    Nope, I checked them all yesterday evening. Sportsman Channel has around 12 programs in HD now, last time I checked there was around 25 (Others most likely expired).

    Reelz HD is probably a good possibility for Q3 since we already have the HD VOD. (LMN, TV Land, H2, Cooking Channel launched HD VOD content before the linear HD was added)

    The other Viacom owned ones (LOGO HD & MTV2 HD) that already have HD VOD are also good possibilities for Q3; since TeenNick and VH1 Classic offer content in HD VOD we could possibly see Viacom launch there linear HD channels later this year.

    DirecTV & Starz Entertainment renewed distribution rights in April 2012, in the PR it stated DirecTV was enabled to launch MoviePlex, IndiePlex & RetroPlex and the related MOVIEPLEX ON DEMAND and MOVIEPLEX ONLINE service on DIRECTV Everywhere. Thus far they have added the authentication with Starz & Encore Play. Link to Press Release. These are yet even more possibilities that we could see.

    Ah. Thanks.

    IFC and H2 were my last two real wants. Any other HD D* adds from now on is just a bonus. :D

    Satelliteracer, reading your post, is it fair to say there isn't a need to create a Q2 HD anticipation thread? And, if I may, another question: Nowadays, when negotiating the channel contracts, are the content providers still expecting the cable/satellite/telco providers to pay extra to carry the same channel in HD? I'd guess that, by now, the content providers are actually expecting extra for the "watch anywhere" type of service.

    Thanks for keeping us as much up to date as possible and keep on making sure "more HD is coming" goes on and on and on! :D
